Big shout out to the incredible estates teams, the site managers and cleaners: door handles and bannisters constantly wiped, sanitisers filled, desks wiped down, signage completed! Smooth running of school results from hard work behind the scenes.

after a very successful return to school yesterday it is great to see front page recognition of the Harris teams’ hard work in getting pupils back to school as soon as possible. At home time pupils came out enthused by their first day back 👏 https://t.co/mQVnJeb45m

Academy Description

Harris Primary Academy Kent House opened in September 2013. We have more than 400 lively young minds at our Academy. Children are supported to be the best they can be by our dedicated teachers and support staff. 

Our children are confident learners who contribute to a caring and happy school community. This really is the children’s school. We meet the needs of all our pupils and nurture whatever talents they might have. Our aim is to make sure that, by setting high expectations and providing targetted support to every one of our children, each will have a successful Primary education.

Academy Ethos

Whatever a child’s background or starting point, we want to make sure that they finish Year 6 with the academic skills, social skills and knowledge necessary to succeed. Every lesson at our school is creative and there is plenty of time for children to think, to play, to discover and wonder.

Each child is taught in the way that suits them best and we step in quickly if a change is needed. For some children, this might involve one-to-one support if they are finding something difficult and for others it could mean stretching them more to keep them interested.  

Our Academy is relaxed and comfortable but pupils know that good behaviour is expected of them. They are frequently praised and rewarded for trying their best and for being kind, hard-working and well-behaved.

We want the Academy to feel friendly and welcoming and we always make sure that every pupil has at least one friend. Our children are taught to respect each other and their teachers.  

There is a zero tolerance approach to any type of bullying.
